Jayapatākā Swami: Initially I was crying a lot. [inaudible] and gradually I realized that I have to follow Śrīla Prabhupāda’s instructions. I realized that since I was staying in Kolkata and Māyāpur, I had received many instructions from Śrīla Prabhupāda. I made a list and there are about 32 major instructions. I then realized actually that there are many more also. So anyway, trying to fulfill those instructions, made me feel connected to Śrīla Prabhupāda. Just like he said to make the Kolkata Ratha-yātrā big, I am doing the humble service, but it is the Kolkata devotees who have made it big! In one sense, Śrīla Prabhupāda asked to have his birthplace developed and that is also done by Kolkata devotees. So like that, Śrīla Prabhupāda asked me to be the executor of his Will. And so now I have been put in an Oversight Committee to see that the International Global Property Office is fulfilling Śrīla Prabhupāda’s desires. Anyway, my app called the Jayapatākā Swami App, that is on Android and also on IOS Apple, and in that there is the list of instructions that Śrīla Prabhupāda gave me. If you pay anything for the App, then I will refund it to you! Because it is a free App! Acintya Caitanya dāsa is one of my secretaries helping me with various orders given by Śrīla Prabhupāda. The people who taken initiation, one of the promises they do is to help me fulfill Śrīla Prabhupāda’s orders. Others, śikṣā disciples, well-wishers, may also voluntarily help.
